Funding Hate is More Than Just Wrong

I received this alert a few days ago. This kind of hate can't be condoned.

In the last few weeks, a group of regular people has been urging big companies to cut ties with CVN (also known as CGBG) - a site that allows customers to donate a portion of their online purchases to 'charities' - including several anti-gay groups such as Focus on the Family and Family Research Council. Because of those efforts, dozens of major companies have dropped off the network.

But now these groups have taken notice and they are pushing their supporters to directly contact companies like Apple, Macy's, Microsoft and Netflix and push them to re-join CVN. These companies have come out in support of LGBT rights, but are now the targets of a powerful hate machine.

Please join me by adding your name to this petition telling these companies that funding hate is more than just wrong - it's bad business.
